Thank you! It's very nice to see another person who likes these plants on here. I grow Venus fly traps, sarracenia, drosera, Nepenthes, Heliamphora, cephalotus, and many other groups of carnivorous plants! If you want any information on these awesome plants, let me know. I love to talk about them, and give people advice. I also would do as much research about them as possible, if you want to keep them...
Here are some great places to get information as well as get the actual plants:
(I am a member on this forum, my username is the same as on here, Ann_A. If you ever decide to join there, send me a PM through there, and I can hook you up with some great people to talk to there, as well as more sources for plants...plus I myself sometimes have extra plants... So do a lot of people, and we all like to post giveaways or trades on the forum...)
(Great information as well as outstanding service and plants. Definitely recommend them...)
(Another good place to get plants from, though they can have a little bit higher prices every once in a while...)
(Great place to get plants from, they always seem to have a large selection of rare plants...)
(good place to get plants from, though they tend to sell smaller plants, and sometimes have a little bit higher prices...)
(These guys are in Germany, and specialize in the very rare and hard to find carnivorous plants. I would love to order from them one of these days, but they are a little pricey-although because of the plants they have in stock, it's not really that big of a deal- also shipping is expensive because it's from Germany to the US, or anywhere else you might live, though they have a US distribute who takes care of all the paperwork and legal stuff with importing, so all you have to deal with as far as importing is the expense of shipping)
Anyways, if anyone has any questions or just wants more info on carnivorous plants, please feel free to let me know, or visit the sites I listed. I love to talk about these plants, so don't feel like you're bothering me with questions or anything... Good luck!
